"It takes a village to raise a child."
Time goes by so fast. We all age & get older, and death is inevitable. Yet as wonderful & precious life is, it also seems unfair some children grow up without a mother or father.
Panhandling is awkward & soliciting can make people uncomfortable.
Nevertheless, I want to help raise awareness for the non-profit organization, Comfort Zone Camp.
Comfort Zone Camp is an amazing organization. They help children grieve and mourn the loss of a loved one. I have participated in a few camps and have seen CZC provide so much for hundreds of children.
The bereavement camps are free to children (and their families), and hopefully CZC can financially continue providing camps to many more kids. If anyone wants to be a part of a proverbial "village" in raising a child, consider volunteering or donating.
Any amount is appreciated. A dollar or two...or $5. Every little bit counts and together, collectively, many children can & will benefit.
"Comfort Zone Camp is a nonprofit 501(c)3 bereavement camp offered free of charge to children, ages 7-17, who have suffered the death of a parent, sibling, or primary caregiver. Camps primary objective is to break the severe emotional isolation children feel after a family loss. To do this, we offer a blend of traditional camp activities, trust-building activities, 1:1 mentorship, and grief counseling, as well as an ongoing support network that will be there for each camper long after camp is over. Camps are located in California, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Virginia."
